Piers Morgan threatened to "exact horrific revenge" on Lorraine Kelly after she made a surprising threat.
In the moments of banter between Piers and Lorraine as she teased her upcoming show, Piers pointed out Lorraine’s comments about him, where she said in an interview that she would "strangle him with her bare hands," if they were forced to share a sofa.
She also added it would be "justifiable homicide" after the article also named her "television’s sweetest breakfast star."
Piers was clearly affronted by her comments, saying: "That seems to be a direct threat on my personage, a clear suggestion that the person who occupies the studio just through that plywood may at any moment, launch herself at me with her bare hands and try and kill me."

At this, Lorraine jokingly said that was maybe a bit too much of a harsh comment, before saying: "On reflection, Piers… yes I would. You would drive me crazy! I’m not as patient as gorgeous Susanna who, as we know, is a walking saint."
Piers wanted to clarify her position, and whether she really would "crush me to death," before Lorraine added: "No court in the land would convict me!"
At this, he thought perhaps he’s worked out how she could make such a comment.
He said: "I think there’s a fine line between men and women, a woman wanting to kill a man and doing other things with her bare hands."

Lorraine recoiled at this, before saying she loves him really, but he was clearly too hurt to be able to move on from this.
Piers replied: "I know you do, but I also know I’m going to have to exact horrific revenge because of this."
Perhaps there’s going to be an angry confrontation through the plywood?
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am and Lorraine airs weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
